Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open Access refers to free access to information and unrestricted use of electronic resources for everyone. Any kind of digital content can be open access, from texts and data to software, audio, and video.
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
Relevance is used to quantify the level of association between a journal and the concept it is listed under, from 0-100. For example, “Brain Stimulation” has a relevance of “24” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it is somewhat related to the field of Computer Science.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations show how often articles from this journal have been referenced in other works. OpenAlex is where we get this data from. Although the accuracy is debatable, it can nevertheless help you get a sense of how prestigious a journal is in general.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
If you are looking for an author or journal article, you can type it in the name, title, or DOI in the search box above to see more results. If you want to see a similar list to this one, take a look on OA.mg
How can I publish my paper on OA.mg?
We do not offer publishing services. If you'd like to get your paper published, I would suggest you find a journal that suits your needs.
What is an APC?
An APC is the article processing charge that an author of a given research paper has to pay in order to get it published in a journal. APCs are most commonly used by open access journals or by journals who offer open access publishing.
What are the different Open Access types?
Depending on the license, a research paper might be categorised as a) Gold Open Access, which means the paper is freely available and fully accessible to everyone, b) Hybrid Open Access, which means that the authors can pay an APC to make the paper freely available, or c) Green Open Access, which means that there is a possiblity to make subcription based journal articles freely avaiable by uploading the peer-reviewed article to an instiutional repository. Among these, Diamond, Black, and Bronze Open Access also exist.
